This is a great show and all the episodes are worth watching, one of the best sit coms of the 50s. doesnt look dated even in 2010!

I know I've panned several episodes of "Love That Bob", But this episode simply is great. Funny, Delighting and even Exciting! Ok, Some the jokes about Rock'N'Roll are very dated now, But most of the humor is still funny to this day. The Winston Cigarette commercial at the end just adds to the Retro pleasure, as do the various attractive ladies. Tasteful, Witty and even Cute, This is a HighLight of IA.

What is it with people...?
What is it with people who watch these shows from the 1950s and seem so shocked that the word 'sex' was used? The phrase 'sex appeal' was used in advertising all the time (can't remember the toothpaste that had the slogan 'sex appeal'). Do you think sex wasn't invented until 1968? This is so weird. It's like every generation thinks that they discovered sex, and the generations before them knew nothing about it. The movies were full of sexual innuendo from the earliest days - Hayes commission notwithstanding. People who get all thrilled because a 1950s TV show mentions 'sex appeal' are just ignorant and should be quiet.
